EXPLANATIONS 



The following records of births, marriages and deaths include 
all entries to be found in the books of record kept by the town 
clerks ; the church records now in the custody of the town clerk ; 
the returns made to the Salem Quarterly Court; cemetery in- 
scriptions ; and a private record of deaths, covering the period of 
1 790-1853, now in the possession of Mrs. George Warren 
Towne, of Danvers, Mass. These records are printed in a con- 
densed form in which every essential particular has been re- 
tained. All duplication of the town clerk's record has been 
eliminated, but differences in entry and other explanatory 
matter appear in brackets. Parentheses are used only when 
they occur in the original record, usually enclosing the maiden 
name of a wife. 

When places other than Topsfield and Massachusetts are 
named in the original records, they are given in the printed 
copy. Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under 
the names of both parties. Double-dating is used in the months 
of January, February and March, prior to 1752, whenever 
it appears in the original and also whenever from the sequence 
of entry in the original the date may be easily determined. In 
all records the original spelling of names is followed and in the 
alphabetical arrangement the various forms should be examined, 
as items about the same family may be found under different 
spellings.

TOPSFIELD 



The Indian name for this locality was " Shenewemedy," but 
the first settlers applied the name of " New Meadows " to the 
grant of land which was made by the General Court, Nov. 5, 
1639, to inhabitants of Salem and Ipswich. Oct. 18, 1648, the 
Court voted, — " The village at the newe medowes at Ipswich is 
named Toppesfeild." Oct. 18, 1650, it was established as a 
town.

Topsfield were established.

Feb. 16, 1774, part of the town of Ipswich, lying on the south
